i have been getting the wierdest, most ridiculous issues using PP , 2014 here is a list:
unsyncing single-source a/v when aplying effects.
exporting the resynced clip to an even more out-of-sync clip
freeze frame. when applying stabilizer, clip will just stall on a frame whereas before the effect, it didn't
losing 2-3 hours of work due to auto-save failure. quitting premiere like normal but still having to force quit
ramdom green frames that just suddenly appear
crashing without auto saving
timeline, source, project thumbnails won't play
toggle to previous/next edit point won't work
significant, work-hidering issues in 90% of my project that collegues have never heard of
pefferences will suddenly change. auto-save set to every 5 minutes and 100 versions will reset to default and audio scrubbing has just turned off
no video, sound only during playback. freeze framing during playback
pasting an item other than what was copied. copied a mask, pasted and mask of diferent size and shape
inserting single frames between clips that i didn't add
mixing unused video during transitions
mixing unused video into masks.
the above image is a mask that is being distorted by the image on the left below but it is only occuring in the mask.
media pending sceen remains long after all content is loaded
artifacting in the form of green pixel fields after exporting
these issues are seriously hindering my ability to work. failed solutions i have run thru are:
closing and reopening PP
deleting render files and re-rendering
replacing the distored clip with a fresh clip
rebuilding the mask
restarting my computer
PRAM and smc resets
uninstalling and re-installing PP
what is going on???
Sorry you are having issues. FWIW, I also run a Mac and do not have these issues - however, I am still running OS X 10.8.5 on my personal machine.
First of all, we need a lot more info: FAQ: What information should I provide when asking a question on this forum?

You say you are using "PP 2014," however, that is not precise enough. Which version of Premiere Pro CC 2014 are you using? 8.0.1, 8.1, or 8.2? Choose Premiere Pro > About Premiere Pro and look at the bottom of the dialog box. That will give you a precise version number.
Here is a list:
Indeed, that's quite a list. My first suggestion is that you check out this article and perform the fixes there, if necessary: Premiere Pro CC, CC 2014, or 2014.1 freezing on startup or crashing while working (Mac OS X 10.9, and later) Are all the permissions set correctly?
The other issue I see a lot is needlessly updating a project file in the middle of a project. The advice here is to avoid updating a project file to a new version of Premiere Pro as you work on it. Update before a new project is created.
Try a test: update to Premiere Pro CC 2014.2 (8.2) and create a brand new project. Does it work better now?
